How did you get started teaching?

Meryl was an Elite Gymnast for roughly 16 years. By the time she ended the sport, she had hurt almost every part of her body, gained a few pounds and did not like the idea of going to a gym to workout, because in her mind it was boring compared to practicing gymnastics as a workout.

Meryl hired a Personal Trainer after ending her gymnastics career to help her lose weight, tone up and get rid of some of the pain she was having due to gymnastics injuries. Her Personal Trainer changed her life! Meryl looked great, felt incredible and developed a positive attitude toward non-sport exercise after working with her Personal Trainer.

The experience compelled Meryl to share the same kind of life-changing experience she had with her Personal Trainer with as many people as possible

Meryl is also a Nutrition Expert, Life Strategist and Motivational Speaker.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We are proud of every job we do because it's always our best job.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Always ask the Personal Trainer you are looking to hire why they do what they do. If their answer is not loaded with passion, wisdom and confidence, this may be a sign that they are inexperienced and/or unenthusiastic about their job.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

1) Am I willing to make time for an In-Home Personal Training and Nutrition Program?
2) Am I ready to begin and stay committed to a Lifestyle Change?
3) What are my specific Fitness and Nutrition Goals?
